‘I’m still struggling’ – Michael Owen can’t understand one Liverpool transfer

Posted by

Michael Owen admitted on Twitter that he still couldn’t get his head around Sadio Mane’s switch to Bayern Munich.

The former Southampton ace agreed a £27.5m move to the German champions despite Liverpool’s hopes of securing the 30-year-old on a new contract to keep him beyond the summer of 2023.

The former No.10’s exit marks the start of the breakup of the Reds’ traditional forward line originally composed of the Senegalese international, Bobby Firmino and Mo Salah.

After seeing Mane go out the exit door, however, the hope remains that at least one of our experienced options in the forward line can be tied down beyond the current expiration date of their terms.

The club remains keen on progressing talks with our No.11 despite prior setbacks, though a compromise on both parties’ sides may very well be necessary to achieve the result many a fan is hoping to see before the start of the new campaign.

Let discussions drag on into the season and it will look increasingly unlikely that Salah will commit beyond 2023, which will leave Klopp’s men with a great deal of noise and speculation around their dealings that the German would much rather avoid.

  1. It is worth noting that even at the peak of Mane s performance Salah still got the glory.

  2. Owen, please I am one of your fans in your time st LFC,
    Let’s reason together how can a player of Mame status earn 100K per week. If his wages was adjusted to 200K long before his renewal he would have remained LFC player. We must stop this stingy mentality all in the name of balancing the payroll books.

  3. Totally agree with you.When the shareholder’s and directors are making millions and for players they want a balance. Players are coming more and more expensive wake up liverpool. Dont give such excuses as if we we are new to football and naive. When all great clubs can afford him why cant we? What a shame to lose a good player.

  4. Maybe he’s just had enough of living in England and wants a bit of a change. Better this than having him stay and play if his heart isn’t in it
